Information
Application Details
Consumption / Dosage

0.3 0.5 kg/m per coat.


The consumption depends on the absorption, the type, the structure of the surface
and the required protection grade. Generally over porous surfaces at least two
coats are required.

Substrate Quality

Substrate must be clean, smooth dry, free of dust, oil or grease and loose or friable
particles. Surface defects such as blowholes, voids, honeycombing, etc. in the
concrete must be repaired with suitable Sika mortars before coating.
